Second time in Windhoek, first at Gecko. We spent there two nights, after our arrival and before the departure. The house is very nice, rooms are all comfortable, clean and quite. Relaxing atmosphere close to the swimming pool.

If you like it unpersonal and unfriendly, than this is a good spot. The owner likes to use the f... word and prefers to make herself comfortable on the patio (or make her own party there). Don´t expect help if there is something not working in the rooms. There are better places to stay in Windhoek for a good value!

I stayed in this hotel twice during August 2011 and found the facilities to be comfortable but only just adequate. Unfortunately the first room I stayed in had a broken soap holder in the shower, a light bulb cover with the barcode sticker still on, an empty soap dispenser and a tap with a handle that came off ! In...
